SYNTHESIZERS - Analog VS Digital Comparison

Published on Jan 10, 2019 Lorenzo Furlanetto

This one is via Lorenzo Furlanetto who had the following to say:

"My name's Lorenzo Furlanetto, an electronic music student in Rome and as such an enthusiast in synths and music technology like all the other readers here. I'm doing my thesis on the current state of Virtual Analog synths compared to their hardware counterparts.

Using an original Minimoog, its Arturia emulation and The Legend by Synapse audio I made 3 identical mixes, each made of sounds only from the respective synth, and published them in a comparison video on Youtube.

I also started 2 polls, a short one concerning the mixes alone and a more in-depth one comparing each single unaltered patch. [links below]

I'm trying to gather as much data and responses to get a meaningful statistical analysis, and I thought this might be a fun and interesting test for the site and the community.

Of course, this is a no-profit academic endeavour, I hope you will consider sharing this content on your site, it would be very helpful.

0:00 - Mix 1
2:08 - Mix 2
4:15 - Mix 3

Here is the link where you can answer 2 simple questions about the study, completely free and requiring no registration:

And here is another more in-depth poll, also including a comparison between the single pathces used in the mix:

Thank you so much for partecipating in either of the surveys, it really is very helpful!"
